Trafford announces Council Tax freeze

The TaxPayers' Alliance January 29, 2013 9:51 AM

Trafford Council has today announced it will freeze Council Tax in 2013-14 and aspires to a freeze again the following year. 

This is great news for local residents, especially as many other Greater Manchester councils have announced plans for an increase. Rochdale and Oldham have announced a 3.5 per cent increase, and Manchester has announced a hike of 3.7 per cent. We will be protesting against those those councils on Saturday 16 February in Albert Square, Manchester, at 12 noon.

Trafford received the lowest settlement from central government of any of the Great Manchester authorities, yet it has the lowest Council Tax, and we praise them for the enormous amount of hard work they have put in to keep Council Tax low.
